COLD... sooo.... cold! I feel like I can't get warm. Maybe I should exercise...
Changing subjects, when opening our fridge today it seems like we are out of everything. But I also felt like we were out of everything right before the five no spend day stretch at the end of December. Okay, granted that five day stretch included four Christmas parties which all involved food but we had to bring something to most of those and I hadn't planned very well so my point still stands.
Right now we need milk, are almost out of juice (a staple here), have a few shreds of cheese left, only one pound of ground turkey; It feels like we are out of everything and I'm having this tremendous urge to run to the store in this blizzard on my day off to purchase necessities. No! Today is going to be a no spend day!
I have $27.63 budgeted to spend on food groceries for today thru Wednesday (plus a small bag of 10 cent deposit cans). I do NOT need to run to the store on my day off in a blizzard. It feels like we are out of everything but I got this! Tomorrow I'll need to get milk and juice and a few others things. I'm not going to kill the budget (cash for this week) because I want this that or another thing. I shall now take inventory of the kitchen...
Meals in the house right now:
A few servings of White Chicken Chili (it turned out GREAT! I already made a second batch)
One Jacks Pizza
Tuna, peas, Parmesan and noodles (that's our quick go to meal)
One serving of rice dinner (one of Abe's favorite meals)
Fixins for Tacos (if I can hoard the little bit of cheese; we can't eat tacos without cheese)
TONS of chicken stock so I could probably make a veggie soup or a veggie soup with dumplings (I love dumplings)
Wow, I guess we aren't out of everything. There are also five apples that need desperately to be used. I think I'm going to make applesauce with them today.
Average daily spending for 2016: $19.37
